Covered Patio With TV
A covered patio is an exterior area of a house or business that is typically near an entrance to the building and provides space for storage, sitting, or similar purposes. Watching television under a covered patio is a relaxing way to spend a summer afternoon or evening, when everyone wants to be outdoors. There are several ways to use TV on a covered patio. Here are some of them. Turn the TV so that wind and rain contact is minimized or eliminated under the covered patio. Against the wall of your house is a good choice, because the set will also be close to an electrical outlet. Plug in a dehumidifier under the covered patio, and empty the collection bucket regularly during muggy summer months. This helps to keep moisture in the air from collecting on and inside the TV. Place remote controls and media such as DVDs in a cabinet or drawer when they’re not in use. This protects them from weather and temperature extremes.
If the temperature outside on your covered patio is 40 degrees F or lower, your regular TV will take a long time to power on and images will appear dark once the television is on. Operate your TV in an environment that is between 40 and 100 degrees F.Use a cover designed for outdoor TVs when you are not watching television on the patio. These snug-fitting covers are designed to block moisture and protect the electronics from temperature extremes, as well as UV rays from the sun.
